I can't quite believe this is my last column of 2021. Where did the year go? says Neil Carberry, REC Chief Executive

I can't quite believe this is my last column of 2021. Where did the year go? I know many of you will feel the same - this year has  been a whirlwind, from the third lockdown in January to the busiest market many of us have ever seen.

At the REC, our role is to be at our members' side whatever the economic weather. Though I must admit I prefer the issues we are facing now to the ones we had in March 2020! Our guiding principle is to put member interests at the heart of everything we do, to help the sector thrive. That's how we make a difference for you, and for the clients and candidates you help every day.
